Corning Inc. has approved a capital investment plan to increase its light-duty filter capacity in Kaiserslautern, Germany. The $44 million investment will be part of the company’s previously announced 2010-2011 capital expenditures. This expansion, which is expected to begin early production in the second half of 2011, will increase Corning’s capacity to manufacture current and future generations of light-duty diesel DuraTrap® AT filters.

“Tighter emissions regulations continue to drive demand for diesel emissions control systems,” said Thomas R. Hinman, senior vice president, Corning Environmental Technologies. “Currently, more than 50% of the passenger cars in Europe are diesel. By 2011, all diesel passenger cars and light commercial vehicles will be equipped with a filter. By expanding our light-duty diesel capabilities, we will be better positioned to meet increased demand from customers in Europe and around the world.”
